ABOUT YOSHIKAWA WRIGHT

Yoshikawa Wright was born in Japan to an American father in the military and a Japanese mother. When he was three months of age, his family relocated to Alaska and thereafter moved frequently. As a child, he was inspired both by the beauty he saw in nature and his mother’s calligraphy and painting. Following in his mother’s footsteps, Yoshikawa won his first art competition in elementary school. While attending University of Colorado Boulder, he took his first course in sculpting stone. After a stone sculpting apprenticeship in Japan, he made the decision that he would dedicate his life to becoming a sculptor, regardless of the hardships such a career choice might pose. After moving to Los Angeles, he became known for creating stunning stone-sculpted water features. His award-winning works are featured in art galleries and commercial spaces throughout the country and internationally. By way of example, Yoshikawa’s sculptures are displayed in Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and the Huntington Art Museum of Pasadena. His Los Angeles Fallen Firefighters Memorial has been highly acclaimed. Yoshikawa and his wife, Gigi, a classical pianist, live and work in Los Angeles.
